Boy, Tex, I am really surprised at you. I would never have expected you, of all people, to overestimate the intelligence of 30 million Americans. I give you three words - "cut and run" - throw a little catchy phrase out there that not only deflects criticism off you but deftly manages to make the other guy look like the incompetent boob and boom, ten percentage points. Don't cloud the issue with facts, Tex, when it's all about the soundbite. Besides, Bush just lowered the deficit! It's now only the 4th largest deficit in history! The guy is simply prescient - that oughta get him another few points. Too bad the media keep reporting on all those deaths in Iraq - they are such killjoys.

Tex

Hmmm, I guess. He's been trying the soundbite strategy all along though. One explanation I thought of is that maybe it's the people who don't think the government is cracking down enough on civil liberties, and are actually supporting him more as the awareness of all the wiretapping, torture, threatening the press, etc. spreads with greater media coverage. That's a fun thought.

Tex

That's weird. As far as I can tell, Alison's comment just vanished. I didn't do it, I swear! Typepad's been acting up all day, so maybe that's it.

Alison

Oh, I get it - dare to criticize Tex and your comment mysteriously "vanishes" - well, if it works for the US government, why not for you? Seems like a pretty winning strategy . . . keep up the good work!

Tex

I can explain! The NSA made me do it! I also may have given them your full name and address - hey, they were threatening to ship me off to Guantanamo.

Besides, if I were to intentionally delete comments, I'd go after Mike's blasphemous anti-White Sox bloviations...
